LOS ANGELES – A rare September storm moved out of the Southland on Saturday night, leaving behind mudslides, flash floods, and vehicle mishaps. The storm also caused scattered power outages in many parts of Los Angeles County, many due to lightning and the fact that it was the first rain in Los Angeles since April. By this evening, electricity had been restored to more than 125,000 of the 128,567 Southern California Edison customers who lost power during the rainstorms, said SCE spokeswoman Mashi Nyssen. As of 5 p.m., 1,078 customers were still affected by SCE power outages, she said. Neighborhoods affected included Torrance, South Los Angeles and Arcadia. “The first rain of the season is always a little difficult,” she noted. The slow-moving storm originated in British Columbia and is also bringing lower temperatures that will linger into next week. The heaviest rain fell in the mountains and valleys. As of 5 p.m., the National Weather Service had recorded 1.3 inches near in the Sepulveda Canyon, 1.18 inches in Newhall and 1.03 inches in Van Nuys. Today is expected to be partly cloudy in the morning, clearing in the afternoon with highs in the upper-60s to mid-70s.
